On Friday, there was a storm brewing over the town of Marquette, MI. And with this storm there came very strong winds and very little rains. Being on the shoreline of Lake Superior, the largest fresh water lake in the nation, strong winds = high waves and choppy waters.
There are two harbors in Marquette, and both of them have their own break wall. A large cement and rock wall that goes out a quarter mile into the harbor in order to block the waves to prevent damage to boats and shoreline. And needless to say, it actually works!
Here is a video clip that I caught:
This video was in the early afternoon when the waves were just starting to pick up. I couldn't get a video of the maximum height of the waves at 18 feet! It was too dark. :(
